New rail infrastructure has boosted the profile of Adelaide’s seaside suburbs Christies Beach and Seaford, according to HTW’s February 2017 update.

The valuation firm says segments worth watching this year are: detached housing in the suburbs of Welland, West Hindmarsh, Renown Park and Devon Park where improved infrastructure is in place; Edwardstown in the southern suburbs (eight kilometres from the CBD); Christies Beach and Seaford (beachside southern suburbs); and quality properties under $500,000 within 10 kilometres of the CBD as these are increasing in scarcity.

“Welland, West Hindmarsh, Renown Park and Devon Park are all situated within close proximity to solid performer suburbs such as Allenby Gardens, Croydon and West Croydon,” the report says.

“These suburbs provide an opportunity for purchasers attempting to enter the latter suburbs but at a more affordable price point.

“These areas are gentrifying, have increasing levels of in-fill development occurring as well as renovations and upgrades of older, character style housing.”

The firms says the Torrens to Torrens project, which is upgrading a large section of South Road, will further improve access to these areas and increase appeal to potential purchasers.

Edwardstown is in proximity to the increasingly popular areas of Clarence Gardens and Daw Park and is currently undergoing large levels of in-fill development.

“Driving through this suburb at the moment, there are a number of dwellings being demolished to make way for higher density, modern housing,” HTW says.

“The suburb is well serviced and has access to a number of arterial roads, providing good vehicle access to the north and south of the city as well as the CBD.

“Christies Beach and Seaford, in particular, provide more affordable opportunities than the neighbouring suburb of Port Noarlunga.”

The recent electrification of the Seaford railway line has improved access to this area.

The Southern Expressway also provides access to the Adelaide CBD which will be further enhanced via the Darlington upgrade currently underway.

“There are increasingly improved facilities in these areas, as there is increasing development in the area, both in-fill and in the Seaford Meadows South development.

“Areas such as Happy Valley and Reynella East still provide affordable detached housing under $450,000 which is comparatively affordable compared to many sections of the market.

“Land release prices in suburbs such as Penfield and the Gawler area continue to increase.”

A three bedroom house at 13 McClure Avenue, Reynella East (above) has been listed for between $330,000 to $340,000.

Similarly a four bedroom house at 20 James Road, Happy Valley (below) has been listed for between $345,000 - $365,000.
